This is the story of a Karate Sensei named Mr. Incredible and a Judo Sensei named Elastigirl. Some years ago, they met on the mat at a Judo class, and Mr. Incredible was immediately smitten. He vowed “Someday I will make her mine!” Everyone laughed at him, because she was obviously way out of his league, and he was a single dad raising a teenage girl (but his daughter was no Shrinking Violet; she was a Karate black belt, too!).
At first, Elastigirl was unsure about this big oaf who kept following her around, but his persistent pursuit paid off, and she fell deeply in love with him. After all, he is Mr. Incredible. A couple of years later, he got down on bended knee on the very same mat where they met, and in front of their dojo family and friends, he asked her to be his wife. Of course she said yes. A couple of years after that, they added to their family a healthy baby boy, an Incredible Son.
I am so blessed to have been able to see this dojo love story unfold firsthand, and to share the joy of training martial arts together as a family with The Incredibles. Just like The Ethridges, everyone in their household can kick butt! Well, not the baby yet, but I’m sure he will learn how to as soon as he can. I can’t wait to find out what his Special Power is going to be!
